Post Your Dino Riders Collections Everyone!
« on: March 18, 2012, 08:10:03 PM »
Hi all


Since this new place needs some posts to get things rolling, I thought about an idea to create a topic so we can all show what we have collected over the many years Dino-Riders based.

Here my collection start with showing the brand new Mint in Box Torosaurus which I bought off ebay USA some time ago for 130 USD incl shipping & free custom taxes to The Netherlands and yeah that was a great bargain hunt I can say!

Also the new replaced Triceratops Dinosaur, the newly replaced Mint in Box Deinonychus with Sky set, Mint in box ICE AGE Sabre Toothed Tiger, ICE AGE Giant Wart Hog and the Loose Pachyrhinosaurus has also been given their places.

So here some newer pics, I also gave Bruce the Pachyrhinosaurus a place tooz! xD
Although I d wonder if would it of really had such a large, horn?
Even after looking at these sketches it may have been possible:

Top two rows:


Middle two rows:


Bottom two rows:


And the entire showcase:


Also I gave the marine reptiles a place as all the other neutral ones in there, rearranged the minerals as well added a few new ones such as that Dioptase you can see just in front of the Tylosaurus Proriger's tail :)

Here some nice juicy Macro shots of it, to give you an idea of it's formats and coloration's, Diptase is truly one of my favorite minerals out there, it's coloration is simply amazing:





Click all images to get the high resolution shots.  8-)

I hope I will see more Dino-Riders posts coming to this new section :)
Hopefully this year I migth be able to add some more minerals in there or maybe a new Dino-Rider who knows right !

Dinoriders and Tsukudas for company.

My living room smells like old plastic dinosaur toys... Better than air freshener!

I can't afford to collect battle gear right now. Maybe in a few years...

Is this only for Dino Riders or can we also post pictures of the re-released Versions? Because as far as Dino Riders goes, I only have the Torosaurus, but I also have some of the Dinosaur Collection releases.

Well at the Dino Riders forum we had the Dino-Riders and the Re-Released versions from the Smithsonian Collection & the Dinosaurs & Cadillacs series were also posted, this was due to that the same Dinosaur molds or models as you call them were used  8)

So to me they all belong in this segment, just post away I'd say and post your Torosaurus too, every Dino-rider is welcome here :P

Well did some updates the past week and apart from all them Steggies I was collecting, I also gave the top shelf of my Dino-Riders Collection a little revamp :)

The Pinacosaurus and the Chasmosaurus were the ones I removed and I added a neutral Triceratops and rearranged the Dino-Riders Chasmosaurus and Pachycephalosaurus and some minerals which also were displayed there :)

So here the results :)

The revamped top shelf:


And the entire display:


This year I do hope to add a few more things in here, even how cramped it all may look hehe 8)

This is my collection of the complete series (these were taken a few years ago on an older camera so the picture quality isn't as good as it could be).  I'll have to get around to taking higher quality pictures one day.

This has all of the dinosaurs and figures, including the Cadillacs and Dinosaurs versions, the Super Dough T Rex and Quetzalcoatlus and the mail-away Ptreodactyl.

Your case and display wouldn't look out of place in a gallery or museum! Very neat. Both figuratively and literally ;)

Thanks!  After I set everything up, I thought it would be fitting to get a custom name plate.  I remember going to the local sporting goods store and asking the clerk to make me up a trophy plate.  "What type of award is this for?"  "No, no award.  Just make it say 'The Dino-Riders Collection'!"  You can imagine the look I got.

Hammerhead-men, Ant-men, and Snake-men i can see, but what is Krulos? I suspect a frog-man, but he is the only one needing a bubble-suit like SlushHead (from New Adventures of He-Man).

I always figured that he would be some kind of totally aquatic frog whose species does not change from gills to lungs when maturing.

Here are my little friends...

For now, these dinos are homeless caveless. I would like to make a diorama dinorama...  ::)


French boxes. Quetzacoatlus is shy, hidden in its box.  :)


I have repaired the lights of Torosaurus' armor, but it's quite weak.  :-\

Cool.  What is the on the left side of the second picture?  Is that a poster of some kind?  I don't believe I've come across that before.
